How can I replicate this? I'd give anything for the keyboard backlight on my new 9630 to stay on! I'd prefer to have some control over it, but it's default behavior of going on and off only when it feels it's appropriate and giving me zero control is more than annoying, especially since the alphanumerics are not all that legible when the backlight is not on.
